History of Champia Inspections
Home Inspection Expertise
Champia started as a single-inspector company in 1987. The Atlanta home inspection industry was new at this time, and many existing homes were not getting inspected. As a result, Champia established Atlanta home inspection procedures for houses and created relationships with real estate agents throughout the Atlanta area. Our Atlanta home inspectors have lived in Atlanta for many years and have unique knowledge and experience in Atlanta home inspections. Beyond examining for the standard structural and operational functions of a home, our Atlanta home inspectors are trained to notice problem areas that involve moisture. Atlanta has a high humidity climate and with constant moisture in the air for most of the year, Atlanta homes are more susceptible to water leakages, moisture damage and mold. Furthermore, our team of Atlanta home inspectors have special training in radon testing and carbon monoxide detection. With such experience, Champia home inspectors are well respected and referred within the real estate industry.
By the mid 1990s, Champia started performing commercial inspections and established an inspection procedure for these structures as well. Champia’s business continued to grow through recommendations from real estate agents and referrals from past customers.
Early in the formation of the company, Champia became active in the local American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) chapter. Members of Champia have held various positions in ASHI including the national Board of Directors and chapter President.
In early 2000, Champia started a school to help serve the real estate market by providing classes relating to home inspections. At this time, new homes were also being inspected and Champia began expanding into this market by having its inspectors get their building code certifications. Now our inspectors, in addition to being ASHI certified, are also building-code certified by the International Code Council (ICC).
In these challenging times, Champia continues to be a dynamic company continually seeking to provide these important services to the real estate market.
